Typical Work Day

I twittered last night that I was not looking forward to today, I got replys back saying. “Overcome that negative thing and turn it into a positive. Only difference between a good and bad day is how you view it.” and today a reply saying “Do you ever have a non-crappy day working at Walmart?? LOL. I’ve never heard you say… “What an awesome day at work today!!” 

So I thought I would blog about my typical work day, and I dont know if today was a good day to blog about this subject because today was a shitty day.

I work at Wal-Mart and the apartment complex I live in is right behind Wal-Mart so I walk to work, so I arrive at work at 4am, walked to the back and I clocked in, I work with a guy every morning who also works the early shift, we both clock in at the same time, I get to the department (Produce) about 4:02am. and my co-worker after he makes his rounds saying hello to everyone, he makes it to the department about 4:20-25ish and then he has to talk some more, he spends about an hour just talking to everyone before he actually does something, awhile back I had a closed availability work schedule to be able to have the same days off as Jeniece and to be able to be able to do family things, I had Fridays and Saturdays off, well all that changed, I was told if I want to keep my full time job, I cant have Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays off, I have to have a open availability, and if I did that I can continue to have my 4am shift and my days off, well I was lied to, I was given Thursdays and Fridays off and now for the next 3 weeks after tomorrow I have a closing schedule and Jeniece has completely opposite shifts as me and she has Tuesdays and Wednesdays off. I keep asking about my schedule and I keep getting lied to and different excuses, lately they have been doing some mass firings, and I noticed this morning when the overnighters were leaving loss prevention was at the front doors basicly frisking them as they were leaving, checking  their begs, feeling their pockets. They are finding every way possible to find ways to fire people. The overnighter in my department was telling me, no matter how good you are at your job, they will find something that they can fire you.

With how the Economy is, they are taking advantage of it and basically playing games. I am 27 years old and I am too old for head games, it feels a lot like being in High School all over again.

Back to my Typical Work Day, management walks the floor around 7:30am and they never have anything positive to say, it is all negative, do this do that, then they threaten your job with customers within ‘listen’ distance.  I look forward to my first break, then I go to lunch and come back and bragging that I only have 3 more hours left and then I cant wait till my last break, then I cant wait to get off work.

The co-worker I work with which is a total slacker is such a brown noser and never has to hear about anything as far problems, I am always the person management goes to and asks, why is this not done, etc, I don’t understand what I have done to be treated like shit all the time, im the only person that is getting bounced around on the schedule. Ohh I cant blog about this anymore it just makes me more pissed off, time to fix dinner.

Slacker

Oh I have been such a slacker, I have not updated my blog here in a few days, well alot of it has to do with my schedule at work this past week, which I had to work 1pm – 10pm which I have not worked in over a year, yes it sucked.

Today was a rather busy day, I had to get my haircut, oil change, try to find some new clothes which all I could find was a new shirt. Then went to visit my mom for a few and now I am home. I am going to cut this short, I am going to finish up the laundry, unload the dishwasher and call it a night.
